    Check-In: 5:45pm to 6:15pm

    Reception 6:00pm to 7:00pm

    Dinner 7:00pm to 9:00pm

    Join us as we look back over thirty years of strengthening the bond between Japan and Alabama. We look forward to welcoming many JASA past presidents and Samuel Ullman Award past recipients as we celebrate our history and move forward together as a community.

    Reception

    Dine and converse with fellow Japanese and American industry and community leaders and enjoy the community of the JASA network. The 2019 program includes traditional Japanese performances, a special guest speaker, and a wonderful view of Birmingham from The Club. 

    New and Expanding Companies

    We will recognize the Alabama Department of Commerce’s 2018 new and expanding Japanese companies to showcase the significant economic impact of Japan on our state and show our appreciation for those who have chosen to call Alabama home. 

    The Samuel Ullman Award

    The Japan-America Society of Alabama initiated the Samuel Ullman Award in 1992 to recognize those who have made significant contributions toward the advancement of the relationship between Japan and Alabama. We will honor the 27th recipient of the award during our celebration.

    Additional Information (The Fine Print)

    The Southeast U.S. Korean Chamber of Commerce ("SEUSKCC")'s 9th Annual Friendship Golf Tournament is a friendly and exciting sports event.  We invite SEUSKCC members and yet-to-be members to join us for this annual day at the wonderful RTJ - Grand National Golf Course.
    There is an 80-player maximum.

    Team Registration.  You may either register in a team of four, or you may register individually and be matched with a team of four.  The team of four must have a collective golf handicap that exceeds 40.  The team of four must be further broken down into two pairs of two people.  The two-person pairs may only include one golfer with a handicap less than 9.

    Format.  The format of the event is a foursome scramble.  Groups of four golfers (each comprised of two separate pairs from two separate teams) will tee off.  Each person in the group of four hits the ball once.  The pair then chooses which one of the player's ball as the starting place for the second swing, etc., until the hole is finished.

    ​Mulligans can be purchased the morning of the event (Up to two per player).

    Team Scoring.  The team scoring is calculated by adding both team pair's scramble score.  The team with the lowest score wins.

    Waiver and Release: By registering for this event, you hereby, for yourself, your heirs, administrators, executors, personal representatives, and assigns, do forever waive, release, and discharge any and all rights and claims for damages or losses, whether monetary or otherwise compensatory, that you may have against the Southeast U.S. Korean Chamber of Commerce (“SEUSKCC”), and/or any of its officers or directors, for any injuries sustained by you arising out of your participation in this golf tournament. You further agree now and forever to hold SEUSKCC and/or any of its officers or directors harmless and indemnify, and covenant not to sue them, for all claims, damages, judgments, and costs of whatever nature and from.

Regular Events


Kayoubikai

Kayoubikai (火曜日会)is our monthly outing to a local Japanese restaurant.  Held on the second Tuesday of every month, Kayoubikai is an opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests, practice Japanese, and stay connected with other JASA members. While membership is not mandatory to attend the event, we encourage registering for individual membership to support JASA  and stay involved with our events!

January's Kayoubikai will be held at the Samuel Ullman Museum (2150 15th Ave S Birmingham, AL 35205) on January 8, 2019 at 6:30pm. We will be trying a new format for this event, so please purchase a ticket here!  


Annual Dinner

Each year, the Japan-America Society of Alabama hosts a special reception and fundraiser to allow our members and guests from all over Alabama to gather, network, and dine with a special program to celebrate the JASA community. Our special 30th Anniversary Celebration will be held on August 22, 2019! Following last year’s highly successful event, we are moving to a larger venue at The Club in Birmingham, AL. View more information about the event here. 



Cherry Blossom Festival

Each year, we celebrate with food, crafts, performances, and other activities at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens’ Japanese Garden to welcome the Spring. Join us in March 2018 for hanami (flower viewing) in Birmingham! Cherry Blossoms, or sakura (桜、さくら), only bloom for a few weeks each year.  In Japanese culture, sakura represent mortality and remind viewers of the beauty and transience of life. Thousands of people flock to parks in Japan to see the blossoms. Come see our Birmingham cherry trees while they are in bloom!

Our next Cherry Blossom Festival will be held at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on March 16, 2018! We hope to see you there!
